Step inside The Peninsula New York and you’ll find a classic and elegant design style throughout the luxurious Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel, befitting its 1905 Beaux Arts structure. Two sweeping marble staircases lead to either the in-house signature restaurant, Fives, or the main reception desk, Gotham Lounge and the main set of hotel guest room elevators. You’ll notice that the lobby its quite small, with just a few chairs. However, adjacent to the lobby you’ll find the Gotham Lounge, which acts like a living room in this New York hotel.
Wherever you go in the hotel, you’ll be surrounded by traditional New York style and understated elegance. Dramatic, oversized crystal chandeliers, marble floors and staircases, Corinthian columns and soaring high ceilings accent various shades of beige, gold and green. In the Gotham Lounge and the lobby, contemporary artwork adds a splash of color, but you won’t see anything too flashy here. The Peninsula New York is all about simple elegance — think clean lines and subdued colors — and at both the main entrance and elevator corridor, fresh flowers in thick glass vases flank the doors. Throughout the hotel, you’ll find even more lovely flower arrangements, bringing the space to life.
